The Volvo XC60 has continued its award streak with the title of ‘Best Car for Long Distances’ in the Auto Trader New Car Awards. This award is based on the opinions of more than 63,000 UK motorists surveyed by Auto Trader, and makes the XC60 the top choice for Britain’s motorists when the open road calls.
When it comes to space and convenience, the XC60 excels; and these are key areas to determining the best car for long distances. Its clever interior layout has been designed to optimise space to its fullest, including a 505-litre boot.
Highly supportive seats and ergonomic controls contribute to journey comfort, reducing fatigue and providing a commanding view of the road ahead. Sensus multimedia and connectivity system gives you access to a wide range of media on your journeys, as well as navigation for easy journey planning. The two-zone climate control with its CleanZone air-quality system ensures clean, fresh air circulates the car to keep you alert and make for a more pleasant cabin environment.
Safety is another key area to ensuring a pleasant and enjoyable drive, especially on long journeys, and the XC60 is one of the safest cars on the road. Hazard-detection and collision-avoidance technology comes standard on all XC60 models, as well as Driver Alert Control, which detects from steering inputs when the driver may be growing tired or losing concentration.
Erin Baker, Auto Trader’s Editorial Director, said: “The Volvo XC60 scored top in how comfortable it is to drive, which is of course vital when driving long distances. It was also recognised for its space, power and safety, and owners praised the car for the smoothness of ride and its very nice interior.”
